Important Graduation Details for Seniors

Exit Interviews:  A faculty member will be contacting students by April 30th to set up the exit interview.  If students are not contacted by someone by Monday, April 30th, they should email Mrs. Taylor.  Collaboration on May 15th and 17th are set aside for these interviews.  If there is a time conflict, you and your interviewer can agree on another date and time that works for both of you.  

Senior College Day: May 2 at Lunch in the Courtyard - In celebration of the Class of 2019, the College Counseling Dept. will be hosting a fun, celebratory event to honor what the future holds for each senior. Seniors are able to wear college sweatshirts on that day from either the college they will be attending or simply any college you’d like. This event is all about celebrating yourself as well as your classmates no matter the destination! There will be snacks, music, photo and note-writing station, and final transcript request station.  All seniors must report to the amphitheater for a class photo at 1:00 pm.

Final Transcripts: There will be a yellow transcript request form that seniors need to fill out to send their final transcript to their attending college. They only submit 1 final transcript request and another $2. There will also be a final transcript station at Senior College Day.

Parents and other guests are $25 per person. It is Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:30 p.m. in the Miller Athletic Complex. Click here to make reservations.

Graduation Practice:  Practice is Wednesday, May 29th  promptly at 12:45.  At 12:15, there is a luncheon in your honor hosted by the sophomores.  Practice will begin immediately after the lunch.  The lunch and practice are mandatory and no excuses will be accepted - so please plan accordingly.  Practice will last until we are all confident that we have it right, but approximately until 2 or 2:30.  You will be excused after we have processed in and out enough to feel comfortable with what will happen for Class Day and Graduation.

Tickets:  

  • Each senior will receive two reserved tickets and four general seating tickets (totaling 6) in the gym.  You will get your tickets from your homeroom teacher after your locker has been cleaned (even if you haven’t used it lately, it must be cleaned), you have checked out with Mrs. Lemon for late fees on library books, you have turned in your school-issued iPad and accessories, and have successfully completed the college acceptances and decision questionnaire in Naviance.  
  • In addition to the tickets for the gym, we will provide a live video stream of graduation that can be viewed in the theater.  Tickets for this will be available by filling out this form.  Seniors can initially request two tickets on a first come, first served basis prior to May 1st.  Any remaining tickets available after May 1 will be released until we have no more seats left.
  • Graduation can also be viewed live on our website from any computer.  
  • Tickets are like cash.  Do not lose them as you will not receive replacement tickets.  
  • Tickets for graduation are given to you free of charge therefore you may not sell them.  

Naviance: you must update your college lists, indicating the outcomes (admitted, denied, waitlist or did not apply) and, when you have made a decision, college attending.  Additionally, you must complete the Graduation Survey which is located in the "About Me" section in your Naviance account. In this survey we ask you to list any honors or awards at entrance they received as well as scholarships.  This information will be in the printed Graduation program and because of this we have a deadline and we ask you to complete this survey by May 3rd.
 

iPad Return: All seniors must turn in their school issued iPad by the date provided by the Technology Department - they will send out specific instructions and dates by mid May.  The iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Apple Smart Keyboard, Case and Charger all need to be returned. If you lost an item or if there is damage or a broken screen you will be charged the cost of the item or repair.  Fees range from $10 to $700, depending on the item.  After the deadline, if the device is not returned or you have outstanding iPad fees to pay, your diploma will be held until that is resolved.

Class Day - Friday, May 31st:  For Class Day, the first bell will ring at 8:30  and you are to go to mentoring.  Wear a nice outfit for under your gown, and bring your graduation gown with you to school - you will wear your graduation gown during liturgy (leave your cap at home, that will not be worn during Liturgy).  Please RSVP for Liturgy here.
